On Tuesday I reported on the road pricing petition at the Number 10 website. Since then it has been going bananas (more thanks to the Telegraph than me I suspect!).
Right now the tally stands at 108,956. This is quite incredible. The hunting lobby is extremely well organised and active and they only got 16,831 signatures for their petition. To beat this by a factor of 6 is amazing.
I have been tracking the numbers for the last four days:
- January 2nd 10:01 72,650 signatures
- January 3rd 10:29 78,080 signatures
- January 4th 7:51 92,413 signatures
- January 5th 23:49 108,956 signatures.
